Bryce Harper Likes Everything In The World

In a radio interview this afternoon, Bryce Harper, who is notable both for being an otherworldly baseball player and possessing the ability to weep tears of cheek-staining soot, is deftly demonstrating how to make everyone not like you. From Nats Enquirer:

Bryce Harper is a Cowboys fan? And a Duke fan. And a Yankees fan. interview on 106.7 the fan is not going well...

These are probably the three most polarizing teams in American sports, and people are bound to hate him for this, but hold on a moment. We need to consider the possibility that Harper, a 17-year-old whose worldview has not yet been compromised by things such as owing rent or suffering wisdom teeth, simply likes everything. Stick with me here.

I am almost exactly ten years older than Harper, and as anyone my age or older knows, you are unfortunately more cynical and less eager to like things at 27 than you were at 17. The statements Harper have made on record bear this out.
